OMG…we LOOOOOVE the videos. I showed it to various decision makers in our company and they are unanimously blown away by the quality and on-point messaging of the videos. You’ve created the perfect balance of fun and witty yet professional voice that is Wiss. Please go ahead to finalize the videos. We are in love with your work and I can’t wait to roll this out on our website! Thank you thank you thank you!

– SHELLEY LAZARESCU Marketing Manager, Wiss

Explaining the automation of print manufacturing in a video is no easy task; communicating that process in a fun, easy illustrated video format that speaks to customer challenges is all but impossible. Luckily we were recommended to Drive80. With Mike and his team of writers, illustrators and animators, it truly was a seamless and easy project. We were able to create over 9 videos explaining various steps involved in the manufacturing and execution process of personalized marketing campaigns from a customer benefit perspective. In addition to the videos themselves, we used the graphics from the videos in webinars, presentations, sales collateral and more. “Eric” our main character even became a mascot on our pharma industry website. Our sales team loaded the videos and marketing assets onto their tablets and computers and were able to use them to spark conversations while out on sales calls. Mike and his team didn’t just create a video series for our organization, they were instrumental in helping us transform perceptions from that of a traditional print company to an exciting and innovative marketing partner. Mike is now one of my “emergency contacts” and the only reason I wouldn’t want to recommend him is so that he doesn’t get too busy for me!

The Drive 80 team developed 8 videos for EarthColor over the past year and the animations exceeded our expectations by delivering targeted and creative messaging. Drive80 truly helped us turn our brand vision into a reality. In addition, we were able to utilize the animated characters in the videos on our website and collateral in our companywide rebrand. It was a pleasure working with Mike and his team; Mike was always in constant communication with us about the status of projects and managing our expectations for completion time. We highly recommend the Drive80 team!

– CARL HOROSZ, Owner/Executive Creative Director at Studio C, Creative Consultants

I’d like to express my sincere thanks to Drive80 for a job well done. I had them produce a promotional video for my annual executive-level golf outing for my non-profit organization. The whole process from drafting the script to the final product was thorough, yet easy and stress free. When I debuted the video at our monthly board meeting, one of our committee members was so impressed that he wrote a check for a major sponsorship on the spot! We are currently one month ahead of schedule with registrations, and the only thing that has changed in our marketing from years past is the addition of this video. I highly recommend Drive80’s work.

– GEORGE RODRIGUEZ, DREW UNIVERSITY

Drive 80 Studio is terrific to work with! From the start of the project to the final product the Drive 80 team delivered, as promised, at each mile stone.

Beginning with their contract, Drive 80 set up a step-by-step process for partnering with us to create a short, engaging and lively video explaining NewHire. I’m not sure if I was more surprised or pleased to discover that the process they implement is very similar to the process we use when we provide recruiting services.

Their contract clearly outlined the process, and the number of revisions included at each step. As we moved forward together, I felt that they listened to my concerns, and acted on each one, providing feedback and suggesting alternatives. Since I know little about design and less about animated video, I valued their expertise, and felt that they offered suggestions (and push-back) thoughtfully. They were able to take my comments and questions and translate them into concrete changes.

At each mile stone we had a phone meeting, and the next steps were clearly stated as well as the time frame for receiving the next deliverable. When I received the final product I was happy with the result! And then I got a surprise, they were available to address some technical issues as we got the video up and running on youtube.com and on our website.

I look forward to a continued relationship with Drive 80 Studios as we work together in the future. Check out the video – I’m betting you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

– LEORA BAUMGARTEN , NEWHIRE

We have a service that can be difficult, at times, to explain the value to prospective clients. I posed this challenge to Mike and his team to help us explain through the use of animation how we can help our clients and where we fit in the picture of their CPA and in-house financial staff.

The result was outstanding.

Mike’s team was able to decipher all the “download” of information I gave them into a clear, concise and engaging story and the animation was phenomenal. What we have is an animation that we can use in many different channels that will continue to generate interest and new business over and over again. Talk about a great Return on Investment! I would highly recommend Mike and the Drive 80 team.

– ANNA MASKER, PROFIT POINT CONSULTING

I recently attended a networking event where a presenter used animation to showcase her business. It was like nothing I had ever seen before and I was instantly intrigued. As luck would have it, out of the 150 people at the event, I somehow managed to be sitting right next to the creator of the animation. I immediately asked Mike if he could make one for me. Although using animation to build your business is great, what I had in mind was something much more personal. After a few months of creative collaboration, Drive80 created an animation that tells the story of my happily ever after. The video details the journey of how my finance and I met, fell in love and got engaged. As my mother so perfectly put it, “I was about to cry until I started laughing!” We were so happy with the final product that we couldn’t wait to show it to our friends and family. It now lives on our wedding website and will be played again for everyone to see at our wedding. The animation is the perfect unique touch for our destination wedding. I’m sure we will be replaying it for many years to come.

After seeing the video drive80 and Mike Doyle did for The Alternative Board, I knew I had to use his talents as well. As part of a big ’80s Night charity concert for CUMAC (pronounced Koo-Mack), one of New Jersey’s most pivotal food banks, my neat company, YouChoose, and CUMAC had Mike develop a 2 1/2 minute video that explained CUMAC’s mission in a unique way that would keep eyeballs on whatever screen they were watching. From script to storyboards to a perfect voiceover, Mike got the job done. Views are up. Branding has grown. And CUMAC continues to fight the good fight with one extra tool in its bucket. Or chest. Box? Whatever you put tools in, CUMAC metaphorically has this video there. Thanks, Mike Doyle!

– DAVE PHILP, YOUCHOOSE, LLC

Working with Mike Doyle and Drive 80 Studios has been one of the true pleasures of 2013. Not only was it fun and stress free, the end results were far beyond my expectations. I am not sure what I enjoyed more, the experience of working with Drive 80 Studios or the look of amazement when soon to be clients see our animation and now clearly understand what we do. I highly recommend Mike Doyle and his wonderful team at Drive 80 Studios!

– CHRIS LIPPER, THE ALTERNATIVE BOARD

Not only did I love the end product, the process was 100% painless and took very little of my time. Mike “got it” from our initial meeting. From that 45 minute meeting, his team developed a script, concept and subsequent story boards. I had minimal changes. Clearly he asked the right questions. I can’t say enough good things about the Drive 80 team.

After that meeting Mike ran with the information and from concept to story board to final product we loved it. We found it to be very enjoyable working with him and his crew and we love the results.
